I continue on my journey to honor my late father by reading all of the books written by his favorite author, Louis L Amour This one, Crossfire Trail, had a unique beginning with our hero being shanghaied from the west coast and forced into servitude for a year on a ship The hero eventually escapes from the ship and heads to Wyoming to help the wife and child of a man he befriended while on the ship There are good guys, bad guys, con artists, Native Americans, horses, gun play, cattle and all of [...]

Classic Louis L Amour Woman in danger, check Five page fistfight, check Hero is sailor mercenary cowboy, check Sioux as dangerous but honorable plot devices Classic.

My first Louis L Amour My first Western novel, truth be told, unless you count some sci fi quasi westerns such as Mars The Red Planet by Mick Farren Won t be my last, though In fact, as quick a read as this is 160ish pages, in dense typeface but relatively simple prose I may make my next couple library stops just about L Amour I m still several books behind on my Challenge for the year A couple nits to pick He s clearly a gifted writer, but he s also extremely prolific, which means he was turnin [...]

This is pure noir James M Cain and Louis L Amour wrote the same genre L Amour is probably slightly idealistic and less cynical, but this is satisfying The fastest gun lives in harmony with nature and people, removes corruption in Painted Rock and rallies the town into a functioning entity His potential for stability only occurs when the system works for everybody He stands for a woman s rights in a town that figures she ll get that through marriage Written in 1954, I think L Amour was quite pro [...]

This is another Louis L Amour book that was originally written as a serial for a magazine, which means that it was published in parts and each issue of the magazine would publish a part Serial novels published like this were popular in the 1940 s and 50 s These novels were full of action and not character development because readers wanted action and because people had to wait until the next magazine came out, there needed to be plenty of action for people to want to read the next section.Rafe C [...]


Erin ☕ *Proud Book Hoarder*

My first western It was okay, pretty short book Also was tired when reading it so that may have something to do with it Like the good guys in the story, dependable interesting sorts It was pretty much non stop action and the lack of break from that was a bit taxing Louis L Amour writes well, but sometimes too dependent with the exclamation marks There was a plot point that bugged me throughout the entire thing why in the world would they get in trouble and hung for mutiny It was clearly expresse [...]


John Turner

This is one of Louis L Amour s best novels It was an action packed fast r ad, rich in description and details of setting This is one of his many books turned into a movie Tom Selleck was powerful as the lead character.


Jason King

One of L Amour s better books, if for no other reason than because it s very by the book You know what you re getting into when you read it.


Chris McKelley

Love this story line, different take on his same theme


Helen Hoover

IntegrityBeing bold and tough doesn t mean sacrificing character Real men are quite able to be both tough and full of honor.

I ve started to read all of the Louis L Amour books by publication order and Crossfire Trail is one of three originally published in 1954 Like previous L Amour books I ve read I liked it They all are pretty predictable and follow a similar storyline with the location and names changing but the pattern is usually a lone tall dark stranger our hero rides into town and runs up against the local big wig be it a ranch tycoon, timber baron, etc and a showdown ensues with the stranger standing up for t [...]

I might be primarily known for my love of contemporary YA, but everyone has their guilty pleasure genre, and mine is the good ole Western I don t know the way these stories completely ignore having a message, but still champion values of right and wrong, while crafting characters just deep enough to be rooted for, is irresistible Louis L Amour is the master, and Crossfire Trail was one of his on going serialized stories This isn t meant to be groundbreaking fiction There s the stoic cowboy hero, [...]

I want 3.5 stars I enjoy Louis L Amour as a writer This one was a little odd for me because I d seen the movie first and it was hard initially to wrap my head around the differences The story is about Rafe who made a promise to Charles Rodney to take care of his daughter and Wyoming ranch When he arrives it is to disbeleif that he knew Rodney but Rafe sets right in to caring for the ranch and trying to convince Ann, Rodney s daughter Bad guys of course try to stop him and Rafe triumphs in the en [...]


Thomas C.Curtis

Not my favorite of the Louis L Amour books, but still I must admit that I enjoy reading about people who do what is RIGHT regardless of what is considered popular.


M. Louis

Whenever you want an old school yarn, there s no one better to turn to then Louis L amour Sell described as e man in the shadows of the campfire , his characters are thick with personality His stories echo an American past as romantic as they are frightening Men who kill, good or bad Women who love and wilderness on the edge of being settled In Crossfire Trail, Rafe Caradec escapes the clutches of a ship captain A captain who relies on shanghied sailors for labor A shipmate asks Rafe to help his [...]


Philip Mizener

This is a classic Louis L Amour tale, with a diverse cast of characters, some honest, some brutal, some quiet, some explosively violent Once again, we get the raw flavour of a time of expansion and collision of world s the honest landholder with the ruthless thief and murderer, the Sioux tribes with the honest as well as the dishonest settler, the brutal elements of winter against the hopes and provisions of warrior and rancher, and the true tales of the heart against the deceptions of greed.


Rob Smith

A great tale wrapped in all that L Amour knows how to unwind This is far simpler than many of his tales and shows how able he was at assembling a book that has the reader fully involved even in a shorter story The core of the story is predictable Other parts are laid out to satisfy the predictability.The writing is very good and the characters well crafted Though the bad guys are a bit less detailed than in other books Though that means the characters have far definition than most books Bottom [...]


Ed

Western Rafe Caradec was a man who always rode at the ready, hardened by a life spent among ruthless men who played for the highest stakes The only thing Rafe held sacred was his word and now he had sworn to a dying man that he would save his Long Valley ranch for his wife and daughter, Ann But Ann thought Rafe was moving in for his own crooked gain, and played right into the deadly hands of the greedy ranchers plotting to destroy her Then Rafe figured a way to save Ann and the land It would be [...]


Bracken A.

I think this is a great book It is set in Wyoming When Rafe Caradec makes a promise to his dying friend, to look after his ranch and family in Wyoming But when he gets to the ranch there is there that meets the eye The ranch is deserted and the family is gone But when he gets to town he finds that his friends wife had died and his daughter is engaged to the mortgage holder on the ranch but when Rafe try s to get some answers he is told to leave and is and is shot at Rafe is making his stand and [...]

When I first checked out Crossfire Trails from the library I thought it would be boring L Amour s brilliant writing proved me wrong This book was a fantastic Wild west adventure that I absolutely enjoyed From the death of Caradec s friend, to the race for oil, to the fight between good and evil, I recommend this story for anyone who needs an adventure to the western state of Wyoming Louis L Amour is a writing genius and I would definitely read of his books.


Ichlem

Classic Lamour novel His ability to transport you back into the early american frontier is nearly perfect Also, the different characters have personalities and characteristics all their own The scene in the courtroom is particularly enjoyable To see the villians squirm at their own stupidity is most enjoyable The main character turns out to be a much formidable opponent than they had originally thought A must read for anyone who appreciates western fiction.


John

This is the second time I have read this book, by accident this time as I forgot I had read it before Gave it 4 stars two years ago and 5 this time I is not a GREAT novel but a very good one, not a wasted page This is the kind of book a non reader should read It would hook them on to reading This authors books should be on the reading list for teens in middle school Anyone who reads this as their first LAmour book , I promise you would want to read of his works


Melissa

I can see why my dad likes Louis L Amour It s kinda like chic lit for guys boys who wanna be cowboys It explains a lot about my dad s likes and dislikes The writing was pretty It flowed nicely Nothing too surprising or out of the ordinary I think I d like to see the movie The relationship that Rafe and Anne had was kind of weird All of the sudden they were in love even though hey hardly spent any time together


Matthew Bledsoe

I thought the book was alright not to interesting but decent the book was about cattlemen that move there cattle across the land when they come apon a native women who has hurt her leg so they accompany her back to her village when some rustlers come along and try to take her back they don t succeed when they get to women home they thank nothing of it but when they wake up they have four new horses in the coral


Chris

On only his third or fourth novel, L Amour starts to expand beyond the framework of good guys bad guys damsel in distress The characters here are compelling, less clear in their intentions, while the heroes and villains are not always willing to fit into their predestined roles A good example of a writer starting to find his way.


Allison

Ok, Louis L Amour is not exactly cerebral stuff But I think his 150 page Western novellas are going to be my new standbys to pick up between longer, intense reading Full of fist and gunfighting, it s entertaining as hell if you can glaze over the plot holes and infallibility of the main character.


Tim

Needed a change from science fiction I watched the Tom Selleck movie of this book I decided to read it and see how close they were Quite a bit different I liked both versions I ll give Louis L amour chances to entertain me It was a nice story, with strong characters I enjoyed it than Red Hope T


Larry Hostetler

Set off the coast of northern California and in Wyoming, this is the usual good read from Louis L Amour Instructive in frontier life, indians of the area, and small town politics, it even has courtroom drama along with the normal romance , fisticuffs and shootings Always interesting and a quick read, this is typical and good L Amour storytelling.


Fredrick Danysh

Rafe Caradee had been shanghaied with Charles Rodney When Rodney was dying off the coast of California he extracted a promise that Rafe would jump ship and help his daughter save the family ranch even giving him a deed to the ranch The daughter doesn t trust him and crooks are trying to take over the ranch.
